's louisiana, home of the super bowl, and more important, the energy sector. so far in 2013, it's the leader, it's up 8%. sure, oil's increased in price this year, but that's not what's really behind the energy move. no, it's the astounding renaissance of the american oil industry. where we keep finding more and more oil and gas, and the companies doing the findings keep going higher and higher in price. just think about what core labs, the company with the technology behind finding so much new oil in old places said last night, last night right here when it detailed its quarter. a quarter that by the way drove the stock up $10.44 to finish today, core told us there could be not one, but two gigantic oil fields in this country we don't even know about, the size of the bakken and eagle ford, the two shales that have made the pipe dream of north american energy self-sufficiency into a reality that we could see in just a couple years time. could you imagine? i think america's oil and gas industry is in the early innings of the second game of the double-header. first game being spindle top. and

pads, and, you know, technology devices. not in things like education and energy and that's the only sign of inflation. but to joe's point, i think the fed can back off on what they've said if in fact we've seen them pull back. they can walk away from the 6.5% unemployment target and wind down quantitative easing in a much more rapid pace. i think that's a step in the right direction, so it doesn't have to be a train wreck. this could be a gradual pullback of easing where interest rates start going up in the first part of 2014. >> we've been talking about pulling this band aid off for so long. carl, it's like housing, though. schiller wrote a piece in the journal, they said it lasted five years. that was painful. but boy, when it reversed, it was more painful than that time with which you're waiting for it to happen. >> joe, art, thanks, guys. good stuff. >> thank you. >> trading debut here at the nyse today. becoming the largest ipo from a u.s. company since facebook. shares of zoetis is trading at $26 apiece. it's the only way to play it in a pure way, because the other animal medicine

beaten down over the last couple of years. this is tech, this is energy, this is big cap, industrials, these are stocks that have basically been -- that have gotten cheaper over the last couple of years, around fears of a global recession, around fears that the rest of the world isn't as strong as the u.s. today, i think that it's time to really reverse that trade and go back into some of the more globally geared gdp sensitive stocks that are cheap, they're underowned, and it looks like the global economy could actually outpace the u.s. this year, and for the next couple of years. >> savita we talked to a bunch of strategists this year who are, i would say, aggressive to -- i mean, mixed in terms of their defensive nature regarding sector allocation, that they might step on the accelerator later on in the year once we get past some of the d.c. deadlines and go more cyclical, go more economically sensitive. would your advice be to err on the side of aggressive? >> i think it's -- there's no better time to do it than now. the reason is that, you know, i think the market looks through a

[ laughter ] >> i think that there's certainly a time and place for cuts. as you say earlier, it's usually when the economy is working a little bit better than it is now. i think if you look back historically, the best time for cuts is back to trend growth, which is 3%, not the 2% economy that we're in now. i'll tell you, i just came last week from the world economic forum, one of the big conversation threads there was that we don't want to be europe. europe has gone too far with austerity. and you might say well that's a liberal point of view. but i'll tell you, the american enterprise institute came out with a report this week saying we should take lessons from overseas. we should not do aust

as well. we are looking at prices just this week alone for heating oil few furs surge 3% leading energy markets higher here and we are continuing to watch what is happening in terms of the percentage of homes in the northeast that use heating oil. of course it is only 6% of homes throughout the u.s. but 80% of those homes are here in the northeast. we are talking about more than a quarter of the homes here in the northeast that use heating oil. and that is having a big impact. in fact it will have a disproportional impact because if you are paying to heat your home with natural gas you are paying far, far less than what you use for paying with heating oil. a lot of that is trickle down of course to the consumer and it is based on what is happening right here behind me in the futures market. we are looking at higher prices pretty much across the board. yes, we have seen a downturn in u.s. oil price because we have a supply boom at least for oil but crude is what a lot of the fuels are based on and that continues to rise higher as well. i have more information on why you pay such high pri

out the latest in energy and metals. sharon? >> jim, several traders telling me thr egetting out of their long positions this morning, looking at the supply issues here in the u.s. two factors contributing to the fact that we're looking at a dollar slide here in the u.s. oil prices, just above $95 a barrel. one of them is the bearish data we got on inventories from the american petroleum institute last night. another factor is that supply glut we continue to have in the midwest. it's likely to remain there a bit longer. the largest refinery in the midwest, bp refinery is not likely to restart its key crude unit until the middle of this year. that was a surprise to the market place, contributing to the slide. we're looking at a slight decline in brent crude prices as well, backing off a 4.5-month high. there have been productions issues in the north sea but they pale in comparison to what we're seeing here in the u.s. the supply concerns here are the big reason we're looking at the differential between brent crude and wti crude prices, above $20. highest price differential of 2013

on the energy complex, brent crude, looking at brent like it wants to get above that $118 level, 4 1/2-month high now, continue to watch what is happening with iran and the fact that iran has backed away from earlier this week saying it may consider having direct talks with the u.s. that reintroduces the risk premium into the oil market. we are also keeping our eye on saudi production. the latest figures seem to show that saudi production is around 9 million barrels per day in january, the same as december, but that is stale reduction from what we have seen and it is the lowest level we have seen in about a year and a half that is also supportive of brent crude prices. keep your eye as well on gold. gold continues to follow the euro lower. back to you, david r >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. >>> yesterday, of course, talking about two large deals, the leveraged buy out-of-dell and liberty global's plan to buy virgin media. jim had brought up at the time as well, hey, signs of confidence, certainly it is that. it is also a sign of cheap money and something that is worth revisiting as we
